Congratulations to Wexford Tennis for winning the 2016 USTA Southern Member Facility of the Year!
Wexford Tennis has been active in USTA play for the past 22+ years.
Approximately 25 USTA Teams play out of Wexford, including additional Junior Team Tennis.
Wexford also hosts two annual USTA events – Wexford/Long Cove Junior Open (typically held in June) and Wexford/Sea Pines Country Club Doubles Championship (typically held in September)
This is not the first recognition by USTA, in 2014 Wexford Tennis was awarded USTA Outstanding Tennis Facility. We are grateful for our dedicated for tennis players and staff, as these accolades would not be possible without them.
Condé Nast Traveler named Hilton Head Island the No. 3 Island in the U.S. in the magazine’s annual Readers’ Choice Awards (falling behind two Hawaiian islands). According to the online listing, our beaches, shopping and restaurants “could compete with major cities.”
Earlier this year Travel + Leisure magazine readers voted Hilton Head Island the best island in the continental United States, noting our “pristine courses and local wildlife.”
We are truly lucky to call this place home.
Last week (October 8, 2016), our Island forever changed with the devastation left by Hurricane Matthew. Despite the downed trees, debris and power/water outages, our community has come together with an outpour of love, compassion and strengthened sense of community.
Neighbors are meeting for the first time, assisting with cleanup efforts and helping those who are unable. We thank all our members, neighbors and friends for their support as we continue our cleanup efforts.

On October 20, 2011, in conjunction with Arnold Palmer’s return to the island for the grand opening of Wexford’s Arnold Palmer Signature Course, Hilton Head Island Mayor Drew Laughlin proclaimed the day to be “Arnold Palmer Day.”
According to Mayor Laughlin, “Our town and community are committed to excellence in all that we do…and nothing exemplifies this better than Arnold Palmer and Wexford’s new golf course.
That day was incredibly special to all here at Wexford, as we greeted Palmer and welcomed him into our community. As we look back at his life, we cherish the time he spent here, and will cherish those memories for forever.

Last Friday we hosted our ever-popular Guest Bartender Night. We first introduced Guest Bartender last year- and it was a hit! It’s an evening in which we invite two brave Wexford members to hop behind the bar (with support from our knowledgeable bar backs!) and serve their neighbors and friends, with all tips going to a good cause. Interested members throw their hat into the ring and their names are selected at random.
This time Cindy Creamer and Josh Johnson were the two lucky members selected! They chose the theme, Yacht Rock, and the specialty drinks, Smooth Operator and Lido Cosmo. Everyone had a blast – patrons and bartenders alike!
Tips from this Guest Bartender Night went towards a fund for one of our longtime (over 27 years!!), dedicated employees who’s been with forced to go out on permanent disability to due severe foot problems.
We’ve enhanced our website yet again!
This month we launched a “Real Estate” webpage. This section of our site is dedicated to providing property details for available listings within our community.
Wexford currently has 459 properties, of which 51 of those are townhomes, 47 are garden homes, 238 are on the golf course and 123 are on the harbour. As of this date (August 24), there are approximately 50 properties on the market.
Our community layout was designed to ensure that every property enjoys scenic views of the golf course, inland harbour or Broad Creek. If you’re looking for picturesque Lowcountry landscape views, look no further! Check out our Real Estate webpage and find your dream home/homesite today!
